  • Maybe someone has already suggested this but a new Pixar film entitled "Inside Out" by Pete Docter and that actually has the emotions as the characters of the film, I think it would be perfect for your article. Each character has a distinct body language, mannerism and design to convey what emotion they are. Might be worth checking out – Nathan 9 years ago
  • Pixar's use of music is particularly good at reflecting emotions on screen. I am thinking specifically of Up and that monatge sequence at the beginning of the film with Carl and Ellie. The music perfectly reflects the varying levels of happiness, love, sadness, loss, grief and so many more emotions. But the music in other Pixar films like Toy Story1-3, Wall-e etc. all do this too. – Jamie 9 years ago
